Good morning, everyone...I've been pretty mopey this month until about three days ago, when I realized I have things like deadlines that need to be kept. And I should really bathe the dogs.
Anyway, June is a huge knitting month in Chicago. Huge. The only month that may be bigger is August. So hopefully I'll be getting off my butt to write more about knitting. We have World Wide Knit In Pubilc Day (well, week) coming up, the Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair, sales all over the local yarn shop world...it will basically be a very fun month to at least shop for yarn, even if it ends up being too hot to knit without air conditioning.
June's pattern is pretty well ready to be sent out to the Scarf of the Month subscribers, and I have about four ideas for July. I should probably pick one, and go with it...
I'm open to suggestions. One of them uses ribbon yarn and increases, one uses laceweight yarn, one uses twisted stitches, and they will probably all be released at some point throughout the year. For now, though, I'm open to suggestions. Anyone have a vote on which is the next scarf pattern you want to see? Oh, speaking of which...I also published the blog post about making the knitting pins on Ravelry. Why should my teeny weeny circle of readers be the only ones who can do something with ten yards of yarn?
By the way, today's Knit Tips Tuesday is about yarnovers. Because sometimes, you actually want to make them on PURPOSE (as opposed to me, who yarns over on pretty much every knit-to-purl change in the middle of a row):
Goodness...I should probably start my day. I have zero words of wisdom today...just wanted to say hello to my knitting friends and family. Oh, and go see "The Avengers." Two hours of both Chris Evans AND Chris Hemsworth? Sign me up! Have a good day, everybody.
